The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' National Nutrition Month Campaign invites everyone to learn about making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits. 

Most people in the United States don't eat a healthy diet and consume too much sodium, saturated fat, and sugar, increasing their risk of chronic diseases.  Fewer than 1 in 10 adolescents and adults eat enough fruits or vegetables. In addition, 20% of young people aged 2 to 19 years and 42% of adults have obesity, which can put them at risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers.

Check out these recipes developed by registered dietitian nutritionists with a focus on healthful ingredients that offer nutrition and variety. They show how easy it can be to prepare and serve healthful foods.
